Collection Of My Favourite Quotes

, , No Comments
I have a friend who collects books. She buys the hardcover version of the books she likes and keeps them with lots of care. For me, I do buy books but don't care about them beyond the words on the leaves. What I collect are quotes. I know a great quote when I see one and I have a book I keep them all in.

Today I will be sharing with you the quotes I like best. Do enjoy.
